Hi all,
I had a discussion with people here in DERI Galway (Uldis Bojars, John
Breslin - cc'd) about SAWSDL and SIOC [1] synergies. Please find below some

- In general, SIOC aims to build the domain ontology along with tools, etc.
for online communities where each community site which will adopt SIOC and
will be providing its data in SIOC could be further integrated/agregated
with other interested parties.

- Regarding SIOC and Web Services, they intend to use (Web) Services as a
query interface which would be provided by a site to query its data.
Currently they use REST services and run SPARQL queries.

- SIOC people intend to submit SIOC to W3C however this has not been done
yet - they are waiting for some additional inputs from partners.

- The possible use of SAWSDL and SIOC could be in annotation of search
services either by means of some classification ontology on e.g. discussion
topics, etc. The purpose of this annotation could be then in discovery of a
proper search service (pre-selection of the service from all services
available within all online communities) to directly answer specific needs
of a user/agent. This scenario would be rather visionary at this stage of
SIOC development.

- We have agreed that I will provide the input to the W3C submission
document into the section of related work/standards where we can sketch this
scenario based on SAWSDL spec.

- This could be the starting point for our collaboration which could evolve
to a chapter in the usage guide and implemented use case.
